Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.

With 2,402,055 views on Wednesday, 27 December 2023 our article of the day is Web hosting service.

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that hosts websites for clients, i.e. it offers the facilities required for them to create and maintain a site and makes it accessible on the World Wide Web. Companies providing web hosting services are sometimes called web hosts.

Typically, web hosting requires the following:

one or more servers to act as the host(s) for the sites; servers may be physical or virtual

colocation for the server(s), providing physical space, electricity, and Internet connectivity;

Domain Name System configuration to define name(s) for the sites and point them to the hosting server(s);

a web server running on the host;

for each site hosted on the server:

space on the server(s) to hold the files making up the site

site-specific configuration

often, a database;

software and credentials allowing the client to access these, enabling them to create, configure, and modify the site;

email connectivity allowing the host and site to send email to the client.
